India’s cricket superstars hope to remain friends with Ashish Nehra foreverIndia’s cricket superstars hope to remain friends with Ashish Nehra forever

first_imgAshish Nehra started playing international before any other member in the current Indian team.Tonight, the left-arm pace ace from Delhi will end his journey as a professional cricketer in front of his home crowd at the Feroz Shah Kotla, alongside India’s bright, young cricketers ready to stamp their class in the world.Nehra had debuted for India in a Test against Sri Lanka in February 19 but did not reach the peaks he was expected to. Injuries kept him off the field for long periods of time and he could eventually manage only 17 Tests and 120 ODIs. However, Nehra remains the third highest wicket-taker for India in T20 Internationals.Besides, Nehra has made friends, plenty of friends, in his 18-year career as an international cricketer. His teammates fondly call him Nehraji and everyone from old buddies Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh to Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan love his sense of humour.VIDEO: #ThankYouAshishNehra.Teammates pay their tribute to the fast bowler and relive their fond memories of him.. https://t.co/HWxJJipJRd pic.twitter.com/y7ykeA3pf3- BCCI (@BCCI) November 1, 2017Nehra’s finest moment on the field came during the 2003 World Cup in South Africa when he ripped apart England’s batting line-up with 6/23. It remains to date the best ever bowling performance by an Indian in World Cup history.The emergence of Nehra and Zaheer Khan coincided with a golden phase for Indian cricket. The two were among the most successful new-ball pairs for India and played stellar roles in some iconic triumphs.advertisementWhile Zaheer finished as one of India’s heroes in the 2011 World Cup, Nehra would be remembered for his miserly spell against Pakistan in the semi-final. Incidentally, that remains his last ODI.Recalled into the T20 side for India’s tour of Australia in early 2016, Nehra showed he had lost none of his magic and picked wickets, guided the juniors and ensured India had a formidable pace attack as they won a bunch of T20 games thereafter.As Nehra prepares for his swansong, some of his teammates walked down memory lane to recall their fondest memories of a well-loved colleague.    “I have a lot of memories but I cannot share them in public. I clearly remember his spell in the 2003 World Cup against England,” Rohit Sharma told bcci.tv.Ashish Nehra will bid farewell to international cricket today – before the 1st #INDvNZ T20I, relive his famous 6/23 v England in 2003! pic.twitter.com/0MSFJfcj8R- ICC (@ICC) November 1, 2017″That was one of the best spells in World Cups for India. I have been fortunate to play with him and wish him the best for his future. He will be a true friend to all of us.”Rohit’s opening partner Shikhar Dhawan said he loved Nehra’s sense of humour.”He has a good sense of humour. I always enjoy his company. I am sure we will be friends even after his retirement.”Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who played with Nehra for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL said he was motivated by the senior pro’s work ethics.last_img read more

Prison warden sentenced to 7 years by UN Yugoslavia Criminal TribunalPrison warden sentenced to 7 years by UN Yugoslavia Criminal Tribunal

The Tribunal’s Trial Chamber II found Mr. Krnojelac guilty on four counts — of persecution as a crime against humanity, of inhumane acts as a crime against humanity and of two counts of cruel treatment as a violation of the laws of war. He was acquitted on other eight counts.“The accused chose to bury his head in the sand, and to ignore the responsibilities and power which he had as warden of KP Dom to improve the situation of non-Serb detainees,” according to the ICTY. The Tribunal described his sentence as “intended to make clear to others who seek to avoid the responsibilities of command… that their failure to carry out those responsibilities will still be punished.” In mitigation, the Tribunal noted that Mr. Krnojelac was inexperienced in the role of warden, and that his participation in the crimes with which he was charged was limited to aiding and abetting the criminality of others. Mr. Kronojelac, a mathematics teacher prior to becoming warden of the notorious Kazneno-Popravni Dom in eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1992, expressed no regret for his part in the crimes that had taken place in the prison. The nearly four years Mr. Kronjelac has already spent in detention will be counted towards the completion of his sentence. read more

March Break The President drops in for lunch and gets grilledMarch Break The President drops in for lunch and gets grilled

When Brock University President Gervan Fearon sat down with some young potential students this week, they listened carefully to his thoughts about developing their minds and making university a part of their lives.When he had finished, and invited questions, they were ready. Would he come swimming with them later that day?This year’s Cultural March Break Camp, run by Aboriginal Student Services, attracted some 45 Indigenous youth aged 5-15, mostly at the younger end of that scale, and mostly from around the Niagara region. It was one of numerous March Break camps at Brock for elementary and high school students, with themes such as lifeguarding, robotics, outdoor adventure, engineering, creative arts and investigative science.At the Cultural Camp, the focus is on giving the kids healthy food and healthy activities, said Sandra Wong, Academic Support Coordinator for Aboriginal Student Services. They’re spending the week playing sports, making rattles and beaded bracelets, or painting birdhouses that they get to take home, along with some birdseed.They also read Thirteen Moons on Turtle’s Back, which explains how Indigenous people in North America traditionally keep track of the changing seasons.And they each get a reusable Brock water bottle so they’ll hopefully drink more water instead of soft drinks, and avoid using disposable single-use plastic water bottles.On Thursday, they were having lunch in Pond Inlet when President Fearon stopped by to try the shepherd’s pie and ask what they’d been up to. They’d enjoyed playing sports and games, but the swimming sessions clearly held a special place in many young hearts.He told them to dream big, be nice to others and always try their best.“This can be your university, too,” he said. “You can swim and play dodgeball or basketball, but in a few years you can come back to Brock and be a student. You can take your creativity even further, and try to achieve anything you want.”Such aspirations will no doubt resonate in the long term, but when another young questioner put up his arm, it seemed the curiosity for this lunch hour was focused on a future that would come shortly after lunch.“Have you ever done a cannonball in the pool?” read more

SEHA Steaua win opener Vojvodina perfect in Serbian derbySEHA Steaua win opener Vojvodina perfect in Serbian derby

Steaua Bucuresti have opened successful the new chapter of the club’s history in their first ever match at SEHA Gazprom League. The Romanian vice-champions beat HC Tatran Presov 26:25 (11:16) after exciting turnover in the second half in front of home fans at Polivalenta hall. Aggressive defense of Tatran, the team coached by Croatian coach Slavko Goluza, made the difference in the first half. Very solid zone of a Slovakian team helped goalkeeper Chupryna (6 saves) to save some important shots and allow some easy goals which put visitors in front after 30 minutes of the clash.Since Steaua’s playmaker Stefan Vujic goal for 5:5 in the 10th minute, Romanian team were constantly in minus due to poor offensive performance. Tatran managed to make 4:0 series before half-time break to leave the court with +5 – 11:16.Domestic team was eager to show better face in front of the home fans at SEHA premiere. They did it with stronger defense on Tatran’s back line Urban – Lapajne – Butorac, who had a lot of problems to find the net in the second half.After only five minutes of the second half, Slavko Goluza was forced to call time-out to help his team staying in the lead (16:17). They managed to do it, but only two minutes before the end, when Steaua made a spectacular turnover with goals by Krsto Milosevic and Alin Rosu, which put home team two goals up (26:24).Lukas Urban scored his third goal to give a chance to Slovakian team 60 seconds before the final buzzer (26:25), but despite chance in the last attack to level the final score, Tatran stayed without points in Bucharest.Steaua’s goalkeeper Tudor Stanescu saved the last shot of Martin Stranovsky to ensure first three points for his team.Alin Rosu was TOP scorer of the match with seven goals followed by Nemanja Grbovic and Javier Hummet with four each. On the other side, Jakub Hrstka and Martin Stranovsky (5/5 from 7m line) led Tatran with six goals each.FURIOUS VOJVODINA WIN SERBIAN DERBY IN NISRK Vojvodina Novi Sad presented a furious performance against national rival RK Zeleznicar 27:20 (13:10) at “Cair” hall in Nis at the start of SEHA Gazprom League season 2018/2019. The Serbian champions played one of the best matches in the club’s history of competing in regional league to ensure first three points at the start of the eighth season.From the very beginning of the match, defensive block with experienced Goran Trkulja and Dusko Celica supported by outstanding Svetislav Verkic between the posts, was the main force of seven-times Serbian champions.Vojvodina’s youngstars Milic and Nikolic made a lot troubles to home team in attack afterward RK Zeleznicar’s coach Veselin Vujovic decided to call time-out  (5:9, 15th). His reaction didn’t change approach and level of self-confidence of his team, who stayed three-four goals down until the end of the first half (10:13).Vojvodina’s goalkeeper Svetislav Verkic (18 saves in total) continued to built solid advantage of his team with numerous saves during second half. Home team made the smallest gap on 13:16, but play 7 on 6 wasn’t a good solution as visitors scored three goals in “empty net” until 46th minute, when Verkic netted his first for 14:22.It was obvious that home team had no strentgh to get back in the match. Fans at “Cair” could see total domination of visitors until the end, who had +10 six minutes before the final buzzer – 16:26.Nikolic, Grozdanic and Celica scored five goals each for the winners, while Spasic and Sretenovic were on the helm of home team with same number… ← Previous Story Stojance Stoilov to miss first three months of the season?

Le son dune sauterelle du Jurassique reproduit à partir danalyses de fossileLe son dune sauterelle du Jurassique reproduit à partir danalyses de fossile

first_imgLe son d’une sauterelle du Jurassique reproduit à partir d’analyses de fossileEn analysant une paire d’ailes de sauterelle fossilisée, des chercheurs britanniques sont parvenus à recréer le son émis par l’espèce d’insecte vivant 165 millions d’années plus tôt. Plongez dans l’ambiance sonore du Jurassique est aujourd’hui possible. Des chercheurs de l’Université de Bristol au Royaume-Uni, sont parvenus à reproduire le son des sauterelles ayant vécu il y a 165 millions d’années. La bande son, rendue publique hier, est disponible sur le site de la revue Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences (PNAS). “Il s’agit d’un appel à l’accouplement effectué par un mâle. Le son est fort et capable de parcourir de longues distances pour parvenir jusqu’aux femelles qui après avoir entendu le bruit décident s’il faut ou non rejoindre le mâle”, explique dans un communiqué Fernando Montealegre-Zapata, auteur principal de l’étude. Pour en arriver à une telle performance, le chercheur et ses collègues ont travaillé sur une paire d’ailes fossilisées découvertes en Chine. Le vestige appartient à une ancienne espèce de sauterelle baptisée Archaboilus musicus, en référence à la structure spécialisée dans l’émission du son, particulièrement visible sur les appendices. Le générateur de son, similaire à ceux des sauterelles actuelles, se compose d’une rangée de dents disposée sur une aile et d’un grattoir sur l’autre. “Quand les ailes se referment, les dents au contact du grattoir produisent des vibrations qui sont amplifiées pour devenir des sons grâce aux membranes des ailes”, souligne Fernando Montealegre-Zapata.Au total, la taille et la forme de 59 structures sonores appartenant à des sauterelles modernes ont été analysées au microscope. Les données relevées ont ensuite été reportées sur une courbe représentant l’intensité des fréquences sonores de chaque sauterelle en fonction des mesures de son appareil émetteur. Un son de basse fréquence pour communiquer en privéÀ lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?A partir de graphiques et des mesures effectuées sur le fossile, les chercheurs ont pu déterminer la fréquence du son produit par les sauterelles du Jurassique à savoir 6,4 kilohertz pour une durée de 6 millisecondes. Cette tonalité, relativement faible par rapport à celle des sauterelles actuelles, permettait au son de voyager plus loin que d’autres à des fréquences plus élevées.Selon les chercheurs, le volume sonore conséquent des forêts du Jurassique et le risque d’être repérer par d’éventuel prédateurs, ont mené les A. musicus mâles à émettre des bruits spécifiques audibles seulement pas les membres de son espèce. “Cet insecte nous permet de construire une image de l’écologie de la forêt du Jurassique, il donne des informations sur la façon dont les autres animaux communiquaient à l’époque”, conclut Fernando Montealegre-Zapata.Le 7 février 2012 à 12:31 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Ridgefield man dies in singlevehicle crash in Castle RockRidgefield man dies in singlevehicle crash in Castle Rock

first_imgA Ridgefield man died in a single-vehicle crash Wednesday evening on Interstate 5 in Castle Rock.John E. Pratt, 58, was driving a 2011 Hyundai Sonata south on the freeway when the vehicle went off the left side of the roadway just before 5:30 p.m., according to Washington State Patrol. The vehicle went several hundred feet on the grassy median before returning to the highway, crossing all three southbound lanes, then going off the right side of the road and striking a tree, WSP reported.Pratt was sent to St. John Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.Trooper Will Finn said that although the investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing, drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor.“It was possibly a medical issue,” he said. “When aid showed up, there wasn’t enough damage to the vehicle for a fatality collision.”last_img read more

The Best Way to Board a PlaneThe Best Way to Board a Plane

first_img Explore further “I remember waiting in line to scan my ticket inside the terminal, I believe it was at the Seattle airport,” Steffen told PhysOrg.com. “I remember being quite disappointed when I saw how long the second line was – the one at the entrance to the airplane – and how slowly it moved. . . . That’s when I thought that there had to be a better way to get people onto the airplane than the one that was being employed. I didn’t have the time to work on it right then, so I brooded over it for almost 18 months. Last year, I decided that I either needed to solve the problem or stop thinking about it.”In his analysis, Steffen found that the worst method for boarding a plane is boarding from the front to the back, since passengers have to wait and step over each other to get to their seats. As he explains in a paper submitted to the Journal of Air Transport Management, conventional wisdom suggests that boarding in a manner opposite to the slowest method seems like it should be the fastest method. Quite unexpectedly, then, Steffen found that the common back-to-front boarding method is actually the second worst method possible, only slightly better than boarding front to back.“I was certain that the worst way to load the airplane was from front to back, so I ran my simulation in that configuration first to set a baseline,” Steffen said. “I was also somewhat convinced that the optimal way would be from back to front or something like it. I half expected to find that back-to-front loading is several times faster than front-to-back. Had that been true, I was prepared to run the two simulations, see how much faster it was, be satisfied, and put it aside. When the results were almost identical, I first thought that there was a bug in my code. Once I was convinced that my code worked properly, I realized that the problem was more interesting than I had anticipated, and I got more serious about it.”Using a combination of a Monte Carlo optimization algorithm and intuition, Steffen determined an optimal boarding method, which could make boarding go 4 to 10 times faster than the worst method, depending on the size of the plane. In the optimal method, passengers would board 10 at a time in every other row (since loading luggage requires about two aisles of space). This way, passengers could always be boarding luggage or sitting in their seats, rather than waiting in the aisle, as in the two previous methods.

Most airlines board passengers the same way, first filling the seats in the back of the plane, and then moving to the front. After a recent experience boarding a plane in this manner, Fermilab physicist Jason Steffen wondered if there might be a better way. So, in the midst of studying gravitation and axion-like particles, Steffen took a short break to investigate an optimal boarding method for airline passengers. However, Steffen also acknowledged that the optimal method might not be practical, since passengers who sit next to each other often travel together, and prefer to board together. He proposed a modified version, where passengers board in blocks of three consecutive seats on one side of the plane in every other row. In this strategy, there would be four boarding groups, with passengers in the same row on the same side boarding together. This method provided a decent middle ground, as it was twice as slow as the optimal method, but twice as fast as the conventional method. Although getting passengers to line up in their correct groups might sound challenging, Steffen noted that Southwest Airlines has been experimenting with having its passengers line up in numerical order – so the logistics wouldn’t be inconceivable.Steffen also identified several other boarding strategies with results superior to the conventional method. Contrary to our tendency for order, even completely random boarding proved to be a good alternative. In fact, random boarding was nearly as fast as the modified optimal method. Plus, by its very nature, it has the advantage of not requiring airline attendants to organize boarding passengers in any way. And the random result also shows that, when passengers board out of order in the other strategies, the results will still be better than the conventional boarding method.The main advantage of the alternative boarding methods is that they allow several passengers to load their overhead luggage simultaneously, which Steffen identified as the largest factor in determining boarding time. By spreading the passengers throughout the airplane instead of concentrating them together, more passengers could load their luggage at once. Steffen noted that, although he has recently heard of other boarding optimization studies, his analysis uses a unique method and is the first to generate this specific optimization strategy.“I think that the biggest challenge to implementing one of these methods is cracking into the industry,” he said. “Right now, I have a model where the parameters need to be calibrated with data. But that would require an investment from an airline company or manufacturer. While I could be wrong, I doubt that when an airline company needs to study an issue like this one that their first thought is, “Let’s go talk to a physicist” (followed by, “Look, here’s one that’s studied axions and extrasolar planets. He’s our man.”) The two fields just don’t talk to each other enough to have that kind of understanding.”Still, Steffen thinks that reducing the boarding time could benefit airlines in a number of ways, especially for short flights between nearby cities. In such cases, quicker boarding might allow an additional daily flight to be scheduled, or it could reduce the number of gates an airline requires, since each gate could be cleared more rapidly. With thousands of flights taking off around the globe every day, a few minutes could save a lot of people a lot of time.More information: Steffen, Jason H. “Optimal boarding method for airline passengers.” ArXiv:0802.0733v1 [physics.soc-ph] 6 Feb 2008.Copyright 2008 PhysOrg.com.

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouThe government would like to see the €1 billion of bailout money not required for recapitalising the Cooperative Central Bank used to repay more expensive, short-term debt, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said yesterday.Speaking at an event at the University of Cyprus on the island’s progress and prospects for the duration of the economic adjustment programme agreed with its international lenders (European Union and International Monetary Fund), Georgiades argued that the banking meltdown that culminated in the closing of Laiki Bank and the conversion of uninsured deposits to recapitalise the country’s largest lender – the Bank of Cyprus – was the result of disastrous delay in applying for a €10 EU bailout, which the previous government half-heartedly did in June 2012.“This should have been done at least six months earlier, after Cyprus was excluded from international borrowing markets,” he said.“In turn, the delay led to Laiki Bank passing the point of no return, and led the banking system into deep trouble.”Following an overview of the errors and omissions that brought Cyprus to the brink of default, Georgiades highlighted the government’s achievements in stabilising an economy in a downward spiral in the 20 months since it has taken office.“We have addressed several challenges during this time,” Georgiades said.“A disastrous 2013 was followed by the year of stabilisation, which hopefully will lead to a return to growth in 2015.”Turning to the way forward, the finance minister said the government will strive to maintain lower inflation rates than the rest of the Eurozone, without slipping into deflation.“Additionally, the public payroll, which has always been problematic, needs to be consolidated. Continuous, automatic expansion of both the payroll and the number of civil servants by every previous government are a thing of the past, and the policy of zero pay hikes and hiring has worked – we will be the first government to deliver a smaller, but more effective, public sector.”Georgiades said that, having secured stability, the government now plans to focus on a strategy for economic growth and implementing necessary reforms.Asked whether the government would consider using the €1 billion ‘cushion’ from the €10-billion bailout loan agreed with the Troika in 2013 for recapitalising the Cooperative Central Bank, which proved unnecessary after the CCB passed the European Central Bank’s stress test with flying colours last month, Georgiades said this would be a welcome scenario.“We would certainly be interested in replacing more expensive, shorter-term borrowing using programme money,” he said.“However, such an arrangement would require our lenders’ consent. It is not something that has been tabled as of yet.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Write to Tessa Berenson at tessaberenson@timeinccomAnybody who has watched little boys for even five seconds knows that they are exhausting At school they tear around the playground bolt through corridors and ricochet off classroom walls According to a new Finnish study this is all helping them to be better at reading The study released Nov 30 in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport found that the more time kids in Grade 1 spent sitting and the less time they spent being physically active the fewer gains they made in reading in the two following years In first grade a lot of sedentary time and no running around also had a negative impact on their ability to do math Among girls sitting for a long time without moving much didn’t seem to have any effect on their ability to learn Researchers at the University of Eastern Finland analyzed studies that measured physical activity and sedentary time of 153 kids aged six to eight The studies used a combined heart rate and movement sensor and researchers gave kids standardized tests in math and reading “We found that lower levels of moderate to vigorous physical activity higher levels of sedentary time and particularly their combination were related to poorer reading skills in boys” the study says While the test group was small and Scandinavian (the Finnish school system‘s freaky success is almost legendary) the study offers some evidence for what parents have been thinking for a long time: we may not be educating boys the right way As pressure increases on schools to show evidence of learning many education systems have tried to provide a more academically rich environment But sometimes this has come at the cost of physical education which is often considered an optional extra rather than one of the core skills a student must master Money and school hours that might have been spent on PE are now devoted to libraries science labs and better tech gadgets All of these are worthy teaching tools but they promote a very sedentary style of learning Add to this the reliance on testing which again has it merits and you have kids sitting down for longer and longer periods every day Most US schools don’t require any PE or recess The connection between exercise and learning is not new but the Finnish study provides stronger objective evidence that the increased emphasis on sedentary academic activity among the youngest learners may be fruitless if it comes at the cost of physical activity Boys whose days were more sedentary when they were in first grade (a crucial year for learning to read) made fewer gains in reading in second and third grade They also did worse at math for that year The authors aren’t sure why the difference between boys and girls is so stark Not as many girls participated in the study so that may have influenced results Moreover it may have less to do with the difference between the male and female brain; for girls academic achievement may be more influenced by factors such as parental educational support peer acceptance teachers positive attitude and their own motivation Correction: The original version of this story misstated the journal in which the study was
